When it comes to keeping your house, apartment, condo, or living space clean, everybody has their own standards. Some people scour every inch of their living space for signs of dirt and decay, while others prefer to sweep dirt under the rug. For anyone though, maintaining a home can be a daunting task to take on alone. Even for the hyper-clean, Danny Tanner-like, “clean freaks,” there are a few spots we often don’t think about.
As they circulate the air through your home, they also collect a lot of dust. There are special dusters made for cleaning your fan blades, but often it can seem like a hassle. Especially with tall ceilings, like the air they shuffle around, ceiling fans can go unnoticed.
2. Daily Kitchen appliances
While it may be easy to remember to clean out your blender, appliances such as your coffee maker or dish washer may slip through the cracks. Both devices constantly have water running through them, which makes it seem like they are self maintaining. The truth is they can often acquire buildup and can use a good cleanse every few months. For your coffee maker, try a 50/50 mix of white vinegar and water. For your dish washer, a baking soda bomb should do the trick.
3. Knobs & Switches
Light switches and door knobs may slip your mind when cleaning, but they are the grand central stations of germ traffic. A good disinfectant wipe or spray every few weeks should cut down on chances of spreading sickness. It may seem like a time consuming project to hunt down all knobs and switches in the house. This is where a cleaning service or extra set of hands may come in handy.
4. Decorative Accents
Throw pillows that are never laid on, decorative towels that are never used, these item may seem like they will stay pristine. Dust mites and dead skin are still dropping on those pillows, whether you lay on them or not. The humidity in your bathroom is causing buildup on your towels, whether you use them or not. In order to keep up these decorative items, it’s best to clean them about every month.
5. Remote Controls
After a long bout of cleaning, you may be ready to relax in front of the TV, or turn on some music. Before you do, be sure to remove the pile up of germs on your household remotes with a disinfectant wipe. You’ll be able to relax easier knowing you aren’t switching on a cold.
